My family decided to do a family trip and invite a few friends, a total of 14. We rented out the whole villa and used every room. The villa was very warm and friendly. We had our own guide and tour bus to get to all the local sights, a must is your own transportation. If you are traveling in... More

I have just returned from a wonderful week at Casa Ombuto - Tuscookany Cooking School. It is a stunning location, a beautiful stone villa perched on top of the mountains with wonderful views. The accommodation was very comfortable, located in a number of stone villas on the property. There is also a swimming pool with lounge chairs to relax when... More

I attended the One Week Mediterranean course taught by Chef Laura Giusti. She was not only a fantastic teacher and chef, but a truly beautiful person. The villa was a dream! The surroundings are breathtakingly gorgeous. The grounds keeper and maid do a phenomenal job taking care to make the place a sight to behold from every turn! The friends... More

The Mediterranean Cooking School at Casa Ombuto was an excellent vacation. Under the caring instruction of a Chef Laura Giusti eleven pupils honed their cooking schools while becoming friends. The staff was superb. The school is housed in a villa located mountainside in rural Tuscany. The vistas are beautiful.

Words can't describe the beauty of Casa Ombuto (& Tuscany as a whole) & the fun time had by all with Chef Paola, Sheena & the rest of the Tuscookany staff. The website pics don't it do it justice. The property is magnificent - overlooking the Appenine mountains among various nut & fruit trees, grape vines, veggie & herb gardens,... More

This was the best time of my life! I loved cooking food and meeting the incredible people that were there. It was such a great time. Their main chef Paola is an amazing woman and a great teacher. Each day is different and exciting (keep in mind this is coming from a 15 year old boy). It's fun for all... More

The setting for Casa Ombuto is stunning, in the mountains a couple of hours east of Florence. The accommodations are lovely and comfortable, with guests staying in a picturesque stone villa with lots of terraces and porches to... More

From the moment we arrived on a sleepy warm Saturday afternoon in mid-June, this multi-sensory-filled experience exceeded every expectation... & I had quite a few, not being much of a cook myself, but traveling with a real foodie & exquisite cook! Chef Laura Giusti is truly in her element. She worked easily with all of us at every experience level,... More
